This Filipino Sign Language (FSL) interpreter made the Coldplay concert experience of the Filipino deaf Community unforgettable!
That’s right, the Filipino deaf community was able to enjoy the Coldplay Music of the Spheres World Tour in Manila too, thanks to Bayani Generoso Jr.! As part of the community, Archie Drilon contacted us to introduce Bayani, who interpreted and sang all COLDPLAY in Filipino Sign Language (FSL).

Because of Bayani’s FSL interpretation of Coldplay’s songs, Archie and his deaf friends could maximize their Coldplay Manila concert experience! He said, “[I] cannot believe that I just happened to experience the real concert with more beats, vibrations, and even strong sounds with my Deaf friends!”
He also expressed his gratitude for Bayani’s “creative, inspiring, and unique” Coldplay song sign language interpretations!
“Thank you very much, Sir Bayani Generoso Jr – Interpreter for being the most amazing interpreter to interpret all COLDPLAY songs! The way you create your signs is very creative, inspiring, and unique!”
Furthermore, on behalf of the Filipino deaf community who attended the show, Archie thanked Coldplay MOTS WT Manila organizer Live Nation Philippines and the British rock band “for bringing the most amazing accessibility that most Deaf fans need, sign language accessibility that we’ve ever had for the first time!”
Through this experience, Archie hopes to “advocate more about FILIPINO SIGN LANGUAGE and sign language access that can be accessible for upcoming concerts in case deaf friends or fans want to watch, sign, and enjoy their favorite artists in the future!”
“Interpreters from the Philippines deserve to be loved, appreciated, and supported by you all guys with your continued support and love,” he added.
